To make your hair grow quicker, try supplementing your diet with foods that contain vitamins B, C, E, A, K and, of course, those that are rich in protein.
Let’s start with the essentials: 97% of our hair is made up of keratin protein. Protein deficiency is the reason our hair becomes thinner.
This doesn’t mean that your diet has to contain protein-rich foods only; what it does mean, however, is that your diet has to be healthy and nutritious.
A well-balanced nutrition is based on vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and plant fibers which facilitate protein absorption.
Foods that speed up hair growth are:
- citrus fruits – rich in vitamin C which improves blood circulation and protects hair follicles from being damaged.
- almonds – rich in vitamin E which strengthens the structures of hair follicles and contains B-group vitamins and fatty acids.
- salmon – rich in zinc, protein, and vitamin B12, promotes hair strengthening.
- legumes, such as lentils or kidney beans – rich in biotin, iron, and zinc, promote hair strengthening.
- poultry – rich in animal protein which contributes to keratin production.
- eggs – a good source of protein and vitamin B12 to stimulate hair growth.
- quark – rich in calcium and protein, which are some of the basic building blocks responsible for our hair growth.
If having long hair is something you’ve been dreaming about for a long time, try introducing some changes into your diet and consuming the foods mentioned above. Who knows – maybe, quite soon you will be boasting a long and healthy pigtail.
